New Gen1 Owner from Colorado!

Hello!

Just wanted to thank you all, I poured over this forum many times before finally making the move on a silver 2005 ZX10r!

Thought Id join in the fun now that I have the beast in the garage!

Current Status: PC3, Yoshi Slipon, Frame Sliders, Scotts Steering Stabilizer, Sato Rear Sets GP Shift Setup, -1,+2 Vortex Sprockets.

Any suggestions for her are welcome!

Welcome nice ride. My only suggestion would be to upgrade the brakes their kind of crappy. Caliper's off and 08 or later ZX6 or 14 are a direct bolt on and work much better. Enjoy the new ride. Oh and a Brembo radial master off an 07 or later R1 will complete the package for killer brakes.

Welcome to this site, and That ZX-10R... I'd suggest (for street use) Spiegler street fighter handlebar kit.
And riding solo, ZX6 rear shock linkage... And, 180/55 rear tire, vs 190/50, for the twisties, if your still running stock size.

Most awesome bike, and so well set-up, from the get-go...

Thanks! I already have gotten that squishy feel on the front and will be working on getting a new set up. Big power deserves some better brakes

Thanks! Tires are still stock size but when I wear these out I will look into the alternatives. Not sure why the previous owner thought to put no- name cheap tires on a ZX-10R after dropping big money on the other goodies...but they won't be on there for long
